Some say it should be heritage day everyday and I completely agree with them.  As South Africans we should be embracing our cultures, languages, music, food, land etc every day.  However, it is great that there’s one day set aside to remind all of us to acknowledge everything that makes us unique as the people of this country.  We are a colourful rainbow nation with diverse cultures and this day is about celebrating all of that.  Ever seen a peacock with its wings open?  That’s how we look like on heritage day, beautiful with all our differences.  With that said, the day is also about acknowledging our differences and embracing them.  We should also not forget to be patient and tolerant of one another.  As different as we are we all have to co exist in this beautiful country.  Let’s continue to make South Africa a beautiful place.

I took some time to check out pictures posted on Instagram and they are absolutely darling!  Have a look at them below:
